About the Painting

The Japanese maple tree is very graceful, its tiny pointed leaves delicately arranged like filigree to catch the autumn sun's rays. Layers of golden yellow contrast with fiery orange and red, while distant peeks of blue mountain appear in the distance. The brush strokes in this painting are thick and impressionistic, alive with texture and color.

This painting will be framed in a custom-made, gilded floater frame. The piece was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms, and raw emotional impact. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
